"stock footage." fiorina refused to acknowledge that fact. >> planned parenthood is aborting fetuses alive to harvest their brains and other body parts. that is a fact. plann planned parenthood cannot and will not deny this. it is happening in this nation and taxpayers are paying for it. >> fiorina did stop short of saying that republicans should force a government shut down to defund planned parenthood. an organization which says it does not use public money to perform abortion. this was certainly not a good sign for superstitious supporters of carly fiorina. the curtain came from behind her. they came tumbling down. fortunately, nobody was injured. fiorina quickly picked up the mike and asked if everyone was okay. when the situation calmed, someone in the crowd yelled, trump. fiorina jokingly replied, trump, hillary, it could have been a lot of different people. >> luckily people didn't get
